Have you ever wanted to send or give a card that was a little more extraordinary than normal cards? I think about it often. I LOVE happy mail, so when I can send something a little more exciting to someone else I get really excited. Especially when that something is also an astonishing piece or work. These 3D Cards are just that. Astonishing.

I recently participated in the 2014 Autumn Etsy Swap hosted by Rivers and Roads and Taking Steps Home. This one was done secret round-robin style, so the person you sent to was not the same person you received from, and you had no idea where your goodies were coming from until you got them. What fun! I sent a package to Susannah from Simple Moments Stick. She is expecting a baby, so I had so much fun spoiling her and sending a bunch of goodies for her little one! See what I sent her HERE.
The partner who got me was the lovely Britt from My Little Sunshines. Look at all these pretty things she sent me!
The package included a gorgeous handmade scarf, a Native American Proverb print, some gum, some body spray, and a bottle of blue nail polish. It's like she knows me. :) Thanks Britt, I love the package so much! Also a huge thanks to Amy and Meg for organizing this-they did a great job and if you missed it, they'll do it again in the Spring!

Synopsis According to Goodreads:
Thirty creepy, atmospheric horror stories by Rayne Hall.
These stories are 'quiet' horror, not overly violent and gory, although there are some graphic moments.
Please note: these stories have been previously published in magazines, e-zines and anthologies as well as in the Six Scary Tales collections.
What I Think:
Awwww... There is nothing I love more than Halloween... Unless, maybe, it's a bunch of creeptastic stories to read in the weeks leading up to Halloween. Yes, that might be better. Psyching myself up, working up the creep factor in my life before it's time to actually go out and get scared.
I received Thirty Scary Tales by Rayne Hall via my Kindle App free via Tomoson, but I'm going to give you my 100% honest opinion. I really enjoyed it. The horror is subtle, but just enough that after each tale ends you're left with a little bit of shock and a whole lot of wondering... Wondering what happened next... Wondering where the character goes from there... But, not enough wondering that it's not an enjoyable and wonderfully creepy ending.
I especially loved this author's twist on zombies. It wasn't your same mindless brain-eating machine every other zombie seems to be, but it's a gray walker... A sort of mythical zombie who is aware of what he might do, and what he eventually ends up doing-and he's fueled by emotion and thoughts and witches magic. It was fantastic!
I highly recommend you read these scary stories. Currently you can get it free on Kindle or you can purchase it for only 99 cents! It's worth it!
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
